Happy almost Friday, guys!
I’ve got the urge to get out of town this weekend but I have too many dogs and too many kids to just pick up and leave. So I’m probably going to settle for lying in a beach chair in my backyard and watching all of season 5 of New Girl.
Aaaaaand I bought a new grill this week so I’ll probably grill every meal. I’m pretty excited about that.
I picked up some Smithfield All Natural Bone-in Pork Chops at Walmart recently. These are my faaaaavorite chops. They’re thick and tender and delicious. Plus, Smithfield All Natural Fresh Pork is proudly raised in the USA by Smithfield farm families. And no added ingredients, preservatives, steroids, or hormones!
These chops are perfect on the grill and there’s no reason you can grill ’em like a steak.
I’m really into grilling fruit if you didn’t already know. If I bring fruit into my house right now, it’s going on the grill.
So, of course, when I decided to grill these beautiful chops, I also needed to grill some fruit and peaches are so juicy and delicious right now! I tossed them in the same lemon and thyme mixture that I used on the chops – so good! Thyme is just so versatile and good with everything.
This was a super quick and super easy weeknight meal. I roasted some asparagus in the oven while I was grilling and we were good to go in less than 30 minutes.

- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme
- salt and pepper
- 1 pound Smithfield All Natural Bone-in Pork Chops
- 1 peach pitted and sliced
In a bowl, whisk together olive oil, fresh lemon juice, fresh thyme, and salt and pepper.
Put pork chops in a shallow dish, drizzle about 3/4 of the olive oil mixture over them.
In a separate bowl, drizzle the remaining olive oil mixture over the peaches; toss to coat.
Add everything to pre-heated grill. Grill peaches until tender, just a couple minutes on each side. Grill the chops 6 - 9 minutes on each side, until pork reaches an internal temperature of 145F.
If you love your pork medium rare, you should cook it to an internal temperature of 145 degrees (followed by a three-minute rest). If you like your chops a little more done, you can cook them to an internal temperature of 160 degrees.
